We are Unity Racing, an F1 in Schools team and German runner up from Hamburg. Therefore we will compete in the World Finals 2018 in Singapore.
This is our second year in the competition, as well as our second time competing together as a team. We are best friends united in our passion and goals – to become World Champion. Together we strive to achieve the best result we can possibly get by working hard, being ambitious and try to create new ways by innovative and creative thinking.
Being able to compete at the World Finals was already a dream we would have never thought would come true! But that is the best example: we DID make our dream come true – even though it took a lot of hard work and determination. So why shouldn’t our dream of becoming World Champion become true as well?
F1 in Schools is a multi-disciplinary competition, open to all secondary schools, to design and manufacture compressed air-powdered F1 cars.
The competition is a unique technology challenge that enables second-level students get their hands on the latest technology from the worlds of technology, engineering and manufacturing.
The competitors learn how to apply these new skills in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way. The F1 in Schools Challenge is not all about the speed of the car though. Teams are also judged on the quality of their engineering, graphic design, portfolio, media skills, handling of sponsorship and verbal presentation of their work.
